#MeToo: Tata Sons ends ties with Seth
Seth will cease to be associated with Tata Sons after his contract with it expires on November 30, according to a report. Earlier Tata Group had said that the company was looking into the issue and would soon take a decision on the matter.

Thalapathy Vijay fans have started an all-round celebration on social media as now all the decks have been cleared for a smooth release of "Sarkar" on November 6th the festive Diwali day.

Irrespective of what AR Murugadoss or his supporters say, it is an embarrassing situation for the star director now. He claimed to have registered the story with the South Indian Writers' Association in 2007. A deal has been struck, and it is agreed that Varun will be given the story credit in the movie. When the members found out the similarity, it was decided that a case should be filed in the court.

It basically means Murugadoss accepting of stealing the story. "As I have become the President of SIFW for the first time, I did not wish to create unnecessary controversies and tried for a compromise", K Bhagyaraj, the President of the guild, said in an interview.
